Axios reported that Trump has been mocking both John McCain and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in private.

McCain has also left her old job at Fox News where she used to be a contributor.

McCain is expected to join Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Paula Faris, and Sunny Hostin at the table in October, according to Variety. The outlet notes that the show has been struggling since losing conservative-leaning Elisabeth Hasselbeck in 2013.

After the abrupt departure of co-host Jedediah Bila for allegedly being a little bit too hard on Hillary Clinton during an interview earlier this month, The View is looking for yet another token conservative. At that time, "The View" frequently made headlines for in-show fighting between co-hosts over different political views. The daughter of Senator John McCain describes herself as a "Blonde Republican" who takes a more liberal view on many social issues.

Trump Says 'Shipping Industry' Doesn't Want Shipping Waiver For Puerto Rico
The official said a request from a member of Congress is not the usual pathway from which it gets waiver requests. Asked to comment, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said such a waiver is not yet needed.

The network added, "We want to thank Jed very much for all of her contributions and wish her great success with the next step in her career".

Since creator Barbara Walters retired in May 2014, "The View" has been playing a game of musical chairs, enduring numerous talent changes.

McCain has been politically outspoken for years, ostensibly because of her family. Previous hosts since then have included Sherri Shepherd, Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez, Jenny McCarthy, Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure and Bila.
